    Default toolbars (Word 2000)

    I spend a lot of time working with a team on documents. We use Word's markup functionality and I have a customised version of the Reviewing toolbar that I like to use.

    I would like this Reviewing toolbar to always be available when I am in Word - how can I make it a default toolbar that always appears whenever I open a document?

    I also sometimes click on a hyperlink in Word and that stupid Web toolbar always appears. It is a waste of space on my screen and I would like it NEVER to appear automatically. Can I delete it somehow?

    Re: Default toolbars (Word 2000)

    You could put the following macro in a module in your Normal.dot:

    Sub AutoExec()
    ' Disable the Web toolbar
    CommandBars("Web").Enabled = False
    ' Make sure the Reviewing toolbar is visible
    CommandBars("Reviewing").Visible = True
    End Sub

    This should be sufficient, but you could put the line

    CommandBars("Reviewing").Visible = True

    in the Document_Open and Document_New event procedures in the ThisDocument module of Normal.dot, they will fire whenever a document based on Normal.dot is created or opened. (If you want to make sure the Reviewing toolbar is visible whenever any document is created or opened, you'd have to write application-level event procedures, that might be overkill).

    Thanks for that advice.

    I put the AutoExec() macro in Normal.dot, and get the reviewing toolbar when I first open Word, either with a blank document or by double clicking on an existing document. However, all subsequent documents opened without the reviewing toolbar.

    I finally worked out how to put the line
    CommandBars("Reviewing").Visible = True
    in the Document_Open and Document_New event procedures, (more by trial and error than anything else!) and now subsequent documents based on Normal.dot open with the reviewing toolbar.

    ** I have a couple of other templates that I use frequently, am I right in assuming that if I put that line in the Document_Open and Document_New procedures in those templates I will get my toolbar for documents based on them too? It /seems/ to work that way.

    Thanks again
    Robin

    Yes, if you put the line in the Document_Open and Document_New event procedures of a template, the Reviewing toolbar will be displayed whenever a document based on that template is created or opened.
